An autoimmune disease causes rheumatoid arthritis. The immune system is designed to protect the body, will instead attack cells in the joints which can then cause damage and pain to the joint, bone and cartilage.
Similarly, to rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis can cause painful and swollen joints. Typically, osteoarthritis occurs as a result of wear and tear and is considered a degenerative arthritis. As it is a long-term treatment, there is no current cure. However, there are many treatments that a rheumatologist can suggest which can help to alleviate the pain and reduce the symptoms that you may face.
Gout is another form of arthritis that causes a great deal of pain to a joint and comes on suddenly. As well as the pain, patients may notice redness at the joint. It can also cause the skin over the affected area to become hot and swollen. Usually, gout is treated with anti-inflammatory medication. Your rheumatologist may suggest further treatment to prevent gout from reoccurring.
